Not the best......

Race for Life - Cardiff

I took part in the 5k & 10k run this year with my Run group.  Where do I start?.....

My 5k bib never arrived (well it did, 2 weeks after I completed the race!!!!) :-)  

10k was short by nearly 2k as someone sabotaged the course the previous night..... not the fault of the organisers though... the run was spent mostly zig zagging the wet grass around coopers field / Bute park, not very well thought out or signposted, especially when there are other races such as St. David's Day Run & Mo Run in the same park with better routes..... way too many pedestrians, bikes & buggies around the course. Maybe a change of route next year? I understand there are limited resources for putting on huge amounts of these runs across the U.K. But a little bit of thought into making the course better, may bring a bigger turnout.

The 5k run was much better than the 10k for the route. 

The Run group enjoyed, we always have fun wherever we go to run and for some of them it was their first race. It's all for a good cause and some of our runners children turned up to watch so we we're allowed to let them have a little run over the finish line without anyone telling us not to do it, plus they were given a medal so it made their day.
